Sandbox 3

Guest Rating:

Sleeps 6, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

72 Sea Pine Reach Sea Ranch, CA 95497 United States

Unit 28 Lot 27 TOT ID# 3038N Spectacular white water views can be enjoyed from this beautiful meadow home and its large wrap-around deck. Just a 2 minute walk to the bluff trails and a few steps more to Walk-On beach, the sand and surf are never far from this comfy little beach house we call “Sandbox 3”. Decorated with a casual-modernism, this 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home sleeps 6. The Queen Master bedroom has a fireplace and stunning white water surf that can be seen while relaxing in bed or from the master bath. The second bedroom is a Queen suite with an added day bed that has its own full bathroom with tub and shower. If sharing rooms isn’t to your liking then guests (especially teenagers) will love the loft where there is a full size pull out sofa bed and 1 single bed disguised as an easy folding sofa.



After a long day at the beach, entertaining or simply relaxing on the sprawling deck is a dream. The entire deck has beautiful white water views and views of the adjacent meadow teaming with wildlife. Enjoy dinner or breakfast at the modern outdoor table (seats 6), cook on the large propane BBQ or star gaze in the hot tub. If you’re quiet you may be lucky enough to spot deer grazing very close by from the Adirondack chairs and large outdoor sofa. When it’s time to head indoors you can find tranquility in front of the living room fireplace with a book or re-energize with family game time.



If relaxing isn’t your speed, take a swim at the nearby Del Mar swimming pool or play a game of tennis (just down Leeward Road). Then, head towards The Sea Ranch Golf Links just a 5 minute drive away for a round or just driving and putting practice (very nicely priced). Just steps from the house are the beautiful bluff trails of The Sea Ranch with miles and miles of beaches and nature to explore. Take the dog for a walk and explore the cliff top trails with stunning views of the California coast and watch seals and whales frolic. Dip down to beach level to wet your toes in the salt-water or explore the beautiful and natural tide pools when the tide is right.



When it’s snack time, come in and enjoy the beautiful open architecture of the house. The kitchen, dining room, living room and breakfast nook of Sandbox 3 are all open to each other to create one large living space. Open the windows for that ocean sound and fresh air to enhance your experience. Amazing white water views accompany you while you cook in the kitchen and enjoy meals in the dining room. Take advantage of the same views while you visit with friends or put together a puzzle at the breakfast nook. The soaring ceilings, huge skylights and abundant natural light bring the outdoors in at this charming California beach house.



After sunset, relax on the sofa and watch the stars through the skylight or catch your favorite show via Amazon Fire TV, or Hulu Streaming (Samsung 42’ Smart TV with BluRay in living room, 50” Sharp tv in loft).



Electrical outlets are accessible in the car port, so bring your portable electric car charger if you own an EV to top off the battery for your drive home. We also have a Tesla charger for guests who own a Tesla. A trip to the town of Gualala is a quick 5 minutes away when it’s time for some souvenir shopping or groceries.



Bed linens and towels are included in this beach house rental.

    Sandbox 3 was completely perfect. The view and location are spectacular, the house was immaculate, and the hideaway loft was perfect for my kids. Property manager was very accommodating when we requested to stay another day, and were great communicators throughout. I never wanted to leave! We will definitely be back!

    Larry L from Elk Grove, California recommends this vacation rental

    Four wonderful nights to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. Perfect views of the ocean from our bedroom and living room windows. The hous was clean and well appointed. With just the two of us, we did not use the loft for sleeping, but a great location for a family with children. We may return someday with our children and grand children. There seems to be plenty of room for a family of 6-8, but confirm that with Beach rentals on permitted capacity. Location was just a short walk to the beach trail, visible from the house. We have stayed at various homes throughout the last 25 years and this one was one of our favorites.

    a guest from Reno, Nevada recommends this vacation rental

    Our 5-night stay at Sandbox 3 was fantastic! The house was very well-stocked. We take many of our own kitchen supplies when we stay at vacation rentals, but didn't need most of them this time. Location is awesome with a gorgeous view and easy access to the bluff trail. As others mentioned, the living room can get very bright and hot during the day (even when it's only 50 degrees outside), but there are other spaces (and outdoors) to escape to. Plus, all the windows made for incredible stargazing from the comfort of the couch! Our dogs enjoyed Sandbox 3 also. We'd love to return someday!

    Gayle H from Meadow Vista, California recommends this vacation rental

    Beautiful location and home. The new updates to the majority of the house are awesome. Even the parts of the house that have not been updated are beautiful. The only downside if it is one, is that the house can get warm because of the windows and sky light. We were there in November, but the weather was close to 70 degrees. But open up all the windows/sliders and the cooler air comes in and is great.

    An absolutely beautiful property with great whitewater views across a peaceful meadow where deer often grazed. Decorated so nicely and was well appointed with everything one needs. A big downside though was no storage at all for clothing (closet or drawers) in the main bedroom. Second bedroom had some but very limited. So be prepared to live out of your suitcase. Otherwise thank you for renting your lovely home and especially allowing a dog. We enjoyed our stay very much.

    a guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Gorgeous home, wonderful location. Just some things to consider: 1) on sunny days, the living room is unusable due to no blinds and the greenhouse effect of warmth-would be an easy fix but we couldn't use it the entire stay due to sunny weather; 2) several lightbulbs on the high ceiling were out; 3) grill needs replacing as facilities person noted (plus it was dirty) and 4) plan on drive time back to Gualala to return house key to management office.

    The place was clean, modern and lovely. Fully stocked with kitchen supplies, towels, beds were comfy. Again a perfect home aside from sunny drenched living room.

    Wanda C from Danville, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We truly enjoyed our Thanksgiving week in Sandbox 3. It was a perfect way to socially distance while achieving a change of scenery. The home is well-situated in the meadow with a great white water view but set far enough back from the bluff trail to afford sufficient privacy. We've rented a couple dozen different TSR homes over the years and this is one we would rent again. The only things I would recommend to the owner by way of improvements as a rental property: offer more storage for guests items in the kitchen and master bedroom (no closet or dresser in there), blinds on the large front windows (to mitigate the green house effect on the space and reduce glare on TV), move TV in living down to a more comfortable viewing location (and a larger TV would be great - note there is a large TV in the loft but the ladder access leaves something to be desired). None of these things would make me hesitate to rent this property again, though. It's really a lovely home.

    The home was in a beautiful location. But the bar-be cue had no propane and we were unable to use it for our planned dinner for 6 guests! There was no reserve propane and we had to go indoors. Also the sky lightsl, in the kitchen were out.

    Rebecca P from Oakland, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great stay. The house has been thoughtfully set up and tastefully updated. The location is ideal. The rental company was very helpful and easy to work with. Overall, we had a great weekend.

    There are two small things to note:
    Linens are included, but that means one bath towel per person. If you plan to use the hot tub or pool, pack extra towels.

    Also, there is a raccoon issue at Sea Ranch so the owners/management ask that you do not leave windows open in rooms you are not in and zero food can be left on the counters. Which meant we could not utilize the cross breeze to cool the house off. Due to the massive windows, the house gets very warm on a sunny day. So this might not be the best choice on a warm weekend. Also, there is zero available cupboard space to store food off the counter. So bring some sort of air tight food storage if you don’t want to store everything in the fridge.

    Overall it was a very nice stay. The owners should consider removing the chair in the master bedroom and put a bureau in it's place. We would have felt more comfortable not having to stack clothes on the fireplace mantle. The large cooking pot needs to be replaced.

    Perfect place for a nice week on the coast with our dog! Stocked with everything you could want. Awesome interior design and details. Someone really took a lot of care putting the finishing touches on this great place. Only two things to consider. On those rare, but becoming more frequent, days when it is not overcast - the place is incredibly hot - with no place to escape due to the lack of shades on the living room floor and ceiling windows. Also, the beds are not necessarily optimum for heavier people - certainly not a heavier couple. We made it work, but the first night I thought for sure we were going to end up on the floor.

    Sandbox 3 was a good choice for our group of 4, two couples, seeking a peaceful getaway near Sea Ranch's nicest beach, Walk On. The house had a good view of blue water and was a short walk to the north end of the beach. It was also a dog friendly house, so our pet enjoyed the getaway with us. The house was well equipped, with a fully functional kitchen and BBQ. A bit pricey, but still a reasonable value. My only issue was with a slow draining toilet.
